Another week begins. I'm tired. I slept ... but you know when you dream so close to the surface that it may just have been thoughts floating in your awake head. I had a night like that. At least I knew they were actually dreams and not thoughts by their sheer ridiculousness ;)

I had a relaxing weekend. Yet still one I don't feel like I did everything I was supposed to. I don't remember what Varen & I did on Friday night, I headed home at a reasonable hour to let the bunnies have their first run around on the grass in sunshine in a while (sheesh did it rain a lot last week!). Other than that, I forget. I think we lazed at home with Mochacho's (not very healthy, but we haven't had it in *ages*) and started watching 24 :)

On Saturday I was up early to get in my 3rd gym session of the week since I'd missed it on Friday. And then headed off to the Post Office to collect my new Deals on Meals card and my birthday present from The Peeb. I got an awesome new cook book from her. Awesome :) She got me Delicious Magazine's Everyday Suppers. Great start to the day :)

I was hugely impressed to arrive home to Varen cleaning the bunny-hutch ... this is usually something I have to nag him to help me with each weekend. We got it cleaned up and put the wooden levels back into the hutch (they've been out all week while I've been waiting for the varnish to dry in this very un-sun-shiney weather!). The boons seem thrilled to have the levels back :) And I will say that we were completely surprised to find that by Sunday morning Rex was bounding up all the way to the top level by himself ... honestly I thought it'd take him another month, but the boy has grown ;) Sadly he's not so bonded to Varen & I anymore, but I guess that's the way it goes. I have some photos of each of them to post, but I couldn't get online last night :( It was wonderful watching them enjoying their new space this weekend!

And then we headed off to *finally* watch Wolverine.

Hugh Jackman reprises the role that made him a superstar - the fierce fighting machine that possesses amazing healing powers, retractable claws and a primal fury. Leading up to the events of X-Men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine tells the story of Wolverine's epically-violent yet romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous "Weapon X" program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe whose appearances in the film series have long been anticipated.

It was great. I'm not a huge fan of Liev Schrieber, but he was well cast. Hugh Jackman is only worth watching as Wolverine ... drool. I really enjoyed this movie :)

The rest of Saturday evening was spent chilling at home. Sunday wasn't much different either. We caught up on Bones (love that show ... and the way it ended now I can't wait for the next season!!). And Varen dragged us to the new Star Trek movie.

A new vision of the origin of the greatest space adventure of all time, Star Trek, featuring a young, new crew boldly going where no man has gone before.

I went under duress. Although I do love watching movies. And I kept an open mind. Let me just mention here that other than the typical "Beam me up Scotty" and Spock's "Live long and prosper", I don't know anything much about the original Star Trek (oops, almost wrote Star Wars there ... no that would've got me into some serious trouble! But yes, my knowledge extends far enough to know they are not remotely similar except in name). My vague memories consist on Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Mr Data and Deanna Troi ... the Next Generation (and even those memories are fairly vague).

But this movie was great :) I didn't like Sylar in Heroes, but he makes for a perfect Spock. Perfect. I can't beleive I find myself hoping there'll be a second one. They've set up a great cast of characters and I think it'd be sad if they didn't. My money's on them making at least 2 more movies tho.

And that was about the weekend. I think I may have square-eyes now ;) Haha.

OMG I loved Wolverine! And I wasn't even a big fan of any of the xmen movies - I was kind of meh about it all.

After Wolverine I went and bought the box set.

And apparently there's going to be a Deadpool movie as well;

Ryan Reynolds? Um. Yes please. ;)

This, from Rotten Tomatoes, sums up my opinion of Wolverine:

"The problem with Wolverine isn't that the mythology is detailed and potentially confusing. The bigger issue is that "Wolverine" is so uninvolving that you might not care whether you remember what happened 10 minutes ago. "
Stephanie Zacharek

That said, I am super keen to watch Star Trek ;-)

That book looks great. Way to go to The Peeb.

I love the boon pictures, how cute are rex's ears in that photo!!?!
I loved the Star Trek movie, and I remember Star Trek from way back when Kirk and Spock first made an appearance.
